I am blessed to live in a country that makes me so proud. I do not always agree with the decisions that our leaders make, but I still honour the authority that God has given them. God has kept our country glorious and free, and I pray that He will continue to do so. Although I do not plan on living in Canada for my whole life, I have loved growing up here. Prince Edward Island is and always will be my home and my favourite place in the world.
I sometimes feel that Canada is, in a sense, like the dark horse. Other countries do not always see the extent of what we have, but we prosper despite the lack of their acknowledgement. We have something worth celebrating. It is exciting to see everyone come together on Canada Day to rejoice as a nation. Ever since I can remember, my family has always spent a good portion of Canada Day at Confederation landing and then watched the fireworks later in the evening. I cannot say I am a big supporter of fireworks, but it is still nice to spend time with my family and to be on the island where our founding fathers met so many years ago.
